Publications from the Poetry Society

The Poetry Society has published a journal and newsletter for almost 100 years. The Poetry Review is one of the world's leading contemporary poetry magazines, and has just undergone a bold new redesign for its upcoming Spring issue. Poetry News is packed with features, tips and listings. The Society also offers a range of resources for students and teachers.

Members of the Poetry Society receive four issues per year of The Poetry Review and Poetry News. It is also possible to buy single issues and subscriptions to The Poetry Review.

The Poetry Society also publishes occasional books and anthologies associated with specific projects. Many of these came out of our Poetry Places scheme.


Poetry International

Since 2005 the Poetry Society has acted as  "country editor" for Poetry International, a  truly international forum for poetry on the internet. With quarterly guest editors, we are able to build a picture of contemporary UK poetry for a global audience. For more information, please visit our PIW page on this site; our quarterly issues and the entire archive may be found on
